Post-Screening (combatshadow)

Thu Jun 20, 2013 3:41 am

Hi guys, I got a rejection I'd like some feedback on. I've been mulling over it for a few days, and I think the rejection is very harsh.

The following was rejected for "needs CW rotation, cyan cast grainy soft overexposed level colour personal"

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...9907n454wn_klit_053113_1200p_a.jpg

I don't agree with much of it, and thought some other POV's would help me. My level is based off of the buildings behind, and I think the CW rotation comment was based off of the rising tree line behind.

Not sure about a cyan cast, if anything, I might have a yellow cast.

Overexposed? I don't think so, and I think soft is the wrong direction, I think I'm bordering on oversharpened.

There may be an area I need to focus on, but surely not all of the above?

I appreciate the feedback and guidance.

I agree with cyan cast and CW rotation (based on buildings, not treeline). Soft and grainy look borderline, but I think you'd do better at 1024 pixels. The image looks a bit washed out, which probably results in the overexposed rejection - a bit darker (and maybe a bit more contrast) would help.

Thanks Vik. I'll give it another go then.

For once Vik I pretty much agree with you (   ), however it's definitely not overexposed. I'd actually say a touch more saturation would do the trick, rather than reducing brightness and/or increasing contrast.

Gents, a couple more if you don't mind.

This one rejected for dark. I don't believe this photo is underexposed at all. And my the angle of the sun was not bad. Is the outside vert. stab giving this a dark rejection?

On this next one, rejected for overexposed and soft. If this were overexposed, wouldn't my whites be blown fuzzy as well? But I also need help spotting the soft areas. I took the photo, and tried some more sharpening, but all across it looks like too much to me, and I can't isolate an area.

thanks for the help!

Not so much dark as just the contrast is too harsh, so I'd substitute the dark rejection for contrast.

It's not overexposed, though the quality does seem a little lacking.

Dana, for the second photo (AZ1), would you recommend reducing in size to compensate?


Next, pre-screening question. What do you guys think on the leveling of this one? I'm conflicted.

Leveling looks good to me. I think I would try to increase the contrast a bit; it looks a little flat. I'm also not sure if the quality is there for such a large image size.

I would say that the quality is definitely not there for a 1600px image. It appears quite soft, almost blurry. You could try 1024 and see if that helps.

Thanks guys. I was only asking about leveling. I haven't even started to edit anything, leveling happens to be the first thing I do in my process... So you're looking at an image that's had nothing done but size reduced for an example.

Maybe a tiny bit of CW if anything, but level looks passable to me.

I have a few more post-screening rejections I'd like to ask about.

This one was rejected for "soft", but I don't really agree about it, but I'm not 100% sure enough to appeal it without additional opinions.
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...2731216.4175uh-1h_cjtr_1100p_a.jpg

This one got a "soft" and "dark" rejection. Again, not sure about the soft, I don't see it. But on the dark, I don't think the image is dark at all. Could this have really been a contrast rejection, because I see how that may be borderline?
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...2999571.6988n61mh_kork_1200p_a.jpg

And on this one, "dark" rejection. Again, it's not dark; my contrast needs tweaking maybe?

A bit soft.

Soft, yes. Brightness and contrast look passable, though they'll never look great with the high sun.

Same as the last one with regard to brightness and contrast.

Thanks Vik. Unfortunately the airport airshow was scheduled for 10-2pm. They didn't take photography into consideration, lol. I'll re-edit them, and see what more I can get from them.
